Yassin Harraz’s work has been inspired by the breathtaking natural scenery of the Egyptian landscape since his university studies. From the sweeping countryside to the turbulent coasts, especially in Kafr El Sheikh and Alexandria, Harraz devotes his practice to unlocking all of nature’s visually stimulating elements.
Born in Kafr El Sheikh in 1974, Harraz graduated from the Painting department of the University of Fine Arts in Alexandria. He later received his respective MA and PhD degrees from the same university. He is a member of the Visual Artists Syndicate and has showcased his work in various galleries since 1993. He participated in local exhibitions in Alexandria and Cairo as well as international exhibitions in Italy and Russia. He held four solo exhibitions to date and participated in various international symposiums in Luxor, Hurghada, Borolos, and Minya.
